Still, Klopp also had positive words for the impact made by Minamino, who only recently joined Liverpool from Red Bull Salzburg in what looks like an exciting deal.

The Japan international seems to have settled quickly at LFC, with Klopp clearly impressed with what he saw from his new signing so quickly after linking up with his new team-mates.

Speaking after the game, as quoted by the Metro, the German tactician said: “He was super, outstanding, exactly the player we wanted.
